Gutted!!

I hoped joker67 way pulling my leg, but sadly not!! All my hard work at the weekend has been wasted!!

I got there to find that the froint panel I so carefully drilled out to save was like this:



The nice repair to the inner wheel well was like this:




and the inner wing front was like this!




The near side that Ihadnt started was looking like this!!


It's going to take me ages to get back where I was!! I felt sick when I saw it.

Yeah!! lol I wish my bonnet was, it doesnt fit anyway!! It might have been an advantage!! lol I could have tried to get him to cough up for another one!!.

luckly, joker was a very good panel beater and thinks he can get most of it back out!! I just feel like Im banging my head against a brick wall. I was so proud of what I did last weekend, now I have to start again!!

Did a little on the bug the other night, in as much as choping out the near side bottom door pillar out, and preping for a hooky panel.
Just needs to be wielded in now.



I also felt our unit was missing something, and as I am waiting for panels to carry out the repairs (and some bits from delboy!! hint hint)) lol, I thought I would be industrious. So I built this!!

I was always under the impression that near side refered to the drivers side and off side refered to the passenger side, rather than curb side orientation! Rolling Eyes

Joker 67 the legend!

Me and Shorty (well Shorty) got the door pillar in tonight. No pics yet as I forgot the camera, and we have a few more bits to do tidying up. I hoping to get my replacement front panel this week, so starting to crack on again.

Right then, after the front of the car was hit, I bought a new front clip and set about fitting it.





However, being me I didnt measure it very well and ended up with a gap of 8mm between the body and the front clip when the wings were fitted!! So had to do some infils to breach the gap!!

All done and now onto the door gap on the passenger side!!

will it ever end!!
